Health Department Holding Free Flu Vaccine and Covid-19 Bivalent Booster on Monday, Dec. 12

~Submitted by The Bedford Health Department

The Bedford Health Department will host a clinic offering Flu Vaccine and Pfizer COVID-19 Bivalent Booster doses from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 12. Only the Pfizer Bivalent booster will be available at this clinic, not Moderna. The clinic is free and open to those who live and work in Bedford; however, we ask that you bring your insurance card(s) with you for vaccine program reimbursement purposes.

Bedford residents and employees are eligible for a COVID-19 bivalent booster if you are at least 12 years of age and it has been two months since you: 1) completed primary COVID-19 vaccination; or, 2) received a booster dose with any authorized or approved monovalent COVID-19 vaccine. Those receiving a COVID-19 bivalent booster will be asked to wait 15 minutes after receiving the booster dose.

Flu vaccine is available to anyone 6 months and older; however; children ages 6 months through 7 years old must have received a Flu vaccination in the past to be vaccinated at this clinic; otherwise, these children should obtain their first Flu vaccination from their pediatrician. Those ages 8+ who have never received a Flu vaccination in the past, will be asked to wait 15 minutes after receiving the Flu vaccine. 

Appointments are required for everyone receiving a vaccination at this clinic. You can receive both a Flu vaccine and COVID-19 Bivalent Booster at this clinic. Please make a separate appointment for each vaccination to be received (if intending to receive both) and make a separate appointment for each person in your party. Each person will need to have a completed Registration Form for the vaccine to be received. Registration Forms are available by clicking on the links below. Blank forms will be available at the clinic if you cannot print in advance.
